Baby is doing just great! I got the IP’s on the phone and they got to hear all the stuff the doctor said as well as see the little one on the screen. TECHNOLOGY IS JUST SO COOL!
Baby is measuring right on schedule, 8w2d. Heart rate the first go round was 187 and the second time was 174. The doctor showed us the arm buds, the head, and the bottom. It’s such a miraculous thing! He told the parents that the heart was “very robust” and that there is “absolutely nothing to worry about as of right now.” Yay!
PS- I was freaking nervous. I can’t explain it. My heart was racing the whole time in the waiting room and I couldn’t keep my foot still- the nervous energy needed out! But, as soon as the doc came in and got things situated, he said, YEP… there it is! I was able to take a deep breath. Whew. Hopefully I will get a call from the CA Clinic today that releases me to my OB/midwife team. fingers crossed!
